This was a magnificent app... right up until Evernote acquired it. Crazy as it sounds, it turned into pure, useless garbage within a month. Nothing has changed since then—it's still buggy and limited by Evernote, who hasn't done anything to improve the app, or even update the UI to look like a modern app, since the day they got their hands on it. Like many others, I switched to Monosnap, which doesn't require an account (unless you want to use the "library/manager" feature, and allows you to upload to your own server if you choose.

Sure its simple but its great for doing hat it is designed to do. I'm happily running version 2.8 on macOS 10.13.3 beta 2 with no problems. Most of all its FREE. It does lack some sophistication but if one just wants an app to make a ring round an item in a photo and point an arrow at it and write a short text then its 100% good to go in my opinion. If the author updates, he should charge a fee or at least ask for a donation.

After a long and hopeful wait, I have finally given up on Skitch. Monosnap has filled the void and has very nearly combined the best of Skitch 1 and Skitch 2. The last thing for them to add is a handy library a la Skitch 1, but otherwise it's gone the mile and they seem to listen to feedback which is far more than what we've gotten from the new Skitch owners.

tried the latest version again hoping the main issues would been fixed however back to old skitch after 3 days here is why: 1. No history if you don't use Evernote (I actually do use evernote but don't want all my screenshots on there. 2. No way to easy change image name before drag and drop 3. Upload to FTP now takes 2 steps click, scroll to bottom release pity how this perfect software has been butchered

Still happy with 1.x. Sadly the devs don't listen to us on the lists of features that we miss from 1.x. Stay far way from this until they get their UX heads out of their proverbial butts. Devs, go back through our emails and the compilations here for all the help you need to make this app useful and desired again.

When I upgraded my MacBook Pro from OS X 10.8.5 to 10.10, I decided to give the latest release of Skitch 2 another try. It took me only a couple of screen snaps to see Evernote is persisting with the mess they made of Skitch. Fortunately, Skitch 1.0.12 is still working well on 10.10. The only shortcoming is having to click "Always Allow" on startup when "Skitch wants to use your confidential information stored in 'skitch' in your keychain." If I could eliminate that minor annoyance, Skitch 1.0.12 would be perfect.

Guys, please get your UI / UX team on the previous remarks. The new Skitch is still abysmal after all this time when compared to the previous user experience. Look through the history here and get the items noted fixed. I *ROUTINELY* still find people randomly complaining about what you've done to Skitch. It is a real shame because I think some of us want to like some of the newer features, but the regressions that you have as noted in abundance and enumerated clearly below from the past MUST be addressed for the majority of us to even begin to use the Evernote iteration.

What a joke, you know I thought I'd just give it a try again here to see if they'd addressed our previous notes. Not only have they chosen to ignore us, but now there's a stupid bug that will not copy the correct filename to the pasteboard. For example, it puts underscore marks ('_') at the end of filenames separating the filename from the file type. So it might, for example, give "my_image__png" instead of "my_image_.png" (seems to love those underscores!!! Calm down there guys!).

Seriously, don't even try Skitch 2.x. Download and use Skitch 1.x instead. This is a perfect example of how a big company takes over a small developer with a great app and destroys everything. I think that the Evernote people don't even have an idea what Skitch 1.x was about. And after all this time they have taken over Skitch an got negative Feedback about their new Skitch 2.x, they changed exactly nothing. I am an Evernote premium user and I like it. But with Skitch 2.x they made every imaginable mistake one could think of.

Man you guys don't get it. You are trying to remake Skitch 1.x right now vs adding useful new features TO Skitch 1.x. You are still not at Skitch 1.0; probably at about 0.7 to be frank. Just some simple examples: • You can't define opacity quickly and easily. I was, for example, excited when I saw a very transparent highlighter, but quickly realized that when it faded into full color you missed the mark. There should indeed be a highlighter AND a freeform draw tool. • Shapes are harder to reach, let us click and put up a drawer vs changing context. It's a UX foobar. • Don't postfix numerals on the end of filenames when they are dragged out unless they need to be incremented. • Give use the old resize and crop functionality, not this new crap that is less intuitive and slower to use. • Give us our freaking Skitch 1.0 library back! Don't just open Skitch 1 docs, give us a robust library that we had before and leave the contents intact! It has 3 years of images in there for me! • Lose the stupid new icon; give us back our stylized heart, we're used to it and it is more attractive than this arrow tail. • I could go on quite a bit... You guys are just still really off base.

When Version 2 came around and started "sharing" all my activity with Evernote, I managed to downgrade to Skitch 1.x. Still being irritated by Evernote's relentless pursuit of my private data, I finally stumped across Monosnap, which does everything that Skitch 1.0 did, and nothing more. Yay, Monosnap!

Well, after using mostly LittleSnapper and then Voilà over the past few years (and before that Ambrosia Snapz.. way back...).. I've tried Skitch again (never understood who it was meant to early on.. seemed like a toy to send cutesy" postcards"-type annotated images for teen-boppers at the time of Plasq.. in line with their cartoony Comic Life approach.. at least that is how I saw it. Then lately have been annoyed at Voilà for not being 64-bi7 have decided to ditch all non 64-bit apps inasmuch as possible) and had given up on LittleSnapper before that (and am sure not interested in ember whatsoever). To make a long story long.. I love Evernote and like it when I can sort of streamline certain things.. So.. got Skitch a Twirl again since I got it on on Android.. and though fairly basic it is just fine for my usage which is basically quickly annotating screen grabs for customers mostly (I do not like its icon.. but I can pretend I don't see it..). So the price between Evernote and Skitch is right for me ;0) And the fact that I got those tools on my Android Tablet as well makes it all peachy for me.

Developers, apparently you do not know now to perform UX testing, so let me try to help a little bit. Your goal absolutely must be to make Skitch feel precisely like 1.x of the app. 1.x, as you can see, is something that EVERYONE loved. The only good reviews I've seen (save a couple) are from folks who never used 1.x. So, here you go: • Allow us to rename Skitch 1.0 to "Skitch 1.app" and run it along side of Skitch 2 (that way we don't feel forced and can compare). Right now we have to start Skitch 2 first and then start Skitch 1 in order for this to work as ignorant Skitch 2 thinks Skitch 1 isn't supposed to be running. • Put a tool resizer ON the interface so that we can shrink and enlarge our arrows and fonts like we used to be able to do (http://cl.ly/image/0u3X3V242n1z). • Give us the ability to define transparent backgrounds for our creations. Frequently we want to have transparent alpha pngs (http://cl.ly/image/1P111v143w3p). • Make scaling and cropping work like before (even if you have a crop button, give us the ability to do it like we USED to as it is MORE INTUITIVE) (http://cl.ly/image/1S2O1w3I0X30). • Allow us to name like we used to (http://cl.ly/image/2S2S2S2T2M0M) - it does not appear that now we can rename files properly as you just have a silly title that doesn't stick as the filename when dragging it out to other apps and you just have an ugly "Drag Me (size x size)" area; at least make it like the old Skitch where you can insert a filename there. That makes intuitive logical sense. • Make your bordering narrower; compare old to new: http://cl.ly/image/200w1L422H1p • Give us the old paint bucket back and make it work like it did before so we can fill spaces: http://cl.ly/image/1F0Z1d3M153F • Your selection mechanism is not as good as before. For example, having a selection arrow and being able to draw rectangles or arrows upon arrows (ie, other shapes) was a better way with more fine grained control (http://cl.ly/image/2f0a0J3h0M2S). • Capture Safari pages and USE Safari cookies so that if you are logged in on Safari, it will actually be logged in on Skitch (thus allowing the capture of admin pages, etc.) I could probably provide several more points, however this is a good start. The idea here, as you can see, is to emulate the old version as closely as possible as you have a lot of users who want this. Listening to users is never a bad thing when they know your product better than you do. We have been a very passionate and dedicated userbase for Skitch and fell in love with the app and it's cool little heart icon. We want back what we loved; that's not too much to ask for and it is not too hard to accomplish if you just listen and study.

Really disappointed in version 2x. I was a heavy user of version 1 and it did a bunch of stuff that version 2 doesn't. One thing I REALLY miss is the ability to reuse a capture region. It sort of exists in the new version, but is buggy on multiple monitors. Bah.

Skitch v2 is great. After using v1 for quite a while, I had a hard time upgrading and complaining. After using v2 now for quite a while, I happy to say I don't miss the stuff in v1 I never used. Absolutely love the Evernote integration, as we rely heavily on Evernote for many things. My Skitch shots (which are at least 20 a day) are always available in the Evernote account. The paperless office is that much closer. Scitch 2 is simple and uncluttered. Stability has been a bit sketchy at times, but other than that this is a great app.

It's very simple, "upgraded" to v2 and within a brief period was back at v1. Will stay there as long as I can (ie OS compatibility etc) and when the option of using v1 disappears, so will my use of Skitch. Like so many others, if you don't use/need Evernote, stay clear of v2 of Skitch. 5 stars for v1, ZERO stars for v2. Plain and simple.

If you're looking for a suitable replacement for Skitch, may I suggest Monosnap? I've been hanging onto my Skitch version 1 because version 2 is such a P.O.S. But since I've been using Monosnap, I haven't needed Skitch at all. I use SFTP to upload my screengrabs. Monosnap does it lickety-split and copies the URL to the clipboard in the process for easy pasting. And it's all very configurable in the prefs. It's been nice knowing you Evernote... (Not) Don't let the door hit you in the a** on the way out. :-)

I will preface this by saying I never used version 1.0 so I'm clearly not going to compare, or care what it id before. For the quick and easy screen and sharing of screenshots it works very well. I was already an Evernote user so I did not need to signup. It's easy to use and simply does what I need it to.

Hard for me as a Skitch user from it's beginnings not to compare 2.x with 1.x, and find it wanting. I didn't want to relearn to use it. I didn't want to sign up with Evernote. I miss the Skitch history, the contents of which won't fit into an Evernote account. Much of the functionality and interface elements I most valued are changed or gone.

Although the combination of Evernote and Skitch might eventually make for a more powerful graphics tool, in it's present iteration, Skitch Version 2 offer less powerful than Version 1. Among the many shortcomings of Version 2, these are the most flagrant: - There are less tools and the ability to change the size of tools, arrow and line widths is more limited - text and line widths can't get as small. - Version 1 files are not fully compatible with Version 2. The text is rearranged and much of it is missing. - It's obvious that the real intent of Evernote is to create dependency on subscriptions for additional Cloud storage. I can understand and respect that direction - but to see a valuable and unique tool like Skitch manacled to Evernote's functionality is disappointing. The old Skitch was powerful enough to stand under its own merits. To see it fettered in a subordinated aspect in this version 2 is evidence of greed and short-sightedness. I'm glad I kept my archived my Skitch v1.xx before installing Skitch 2.xxx. For now I continue to use Version 1.xx. - when MacOSX no longer supports it, I'll look for replacement. If Plasq get's their act together, maybe that replacement will be Skitch 3.0?

It deeply saddens me that I paid for this application 1.0 and there is no way for me to use it fully, now, without signing up for Evernote. Can I get my money back? I don't want to sign up for a service I was already getting for free with 1.0. I don't want to upload to cloud and I don't want to sign up to another website that I know nothing about. I am happy indy developers can get picked up, but as a paid user, this is the worst thing that could have happened to me, as I paid for local saving of my files, and now that is impossible. I will be writing my state attorney general, and the better business bureau, not over the money, but based on the principal that software developers shouldn't be able to take away features currently offered because they have sold out to a cloud hosting company.

Like many others here (and on the App Store), I didn't pay attention to the reviews recently left by Skitch users, about this recent upgrade. I guess I didn't feel like I had to. Skitch is a part of my everyday workflow and I didn't think twice about any upgrade being this much of a sharp change, let alone removing features so many of us have come to love. There are many more issues than this, but just to name a few: ** Custom shortcuts. WHY was this option removed? ** Menu icon. Again, why was this removed? Many Mac users like having a slim/clean dock. The list goes on and on but the idea of an upgrade is to improve upon the already rock solid features of an already very popular and loved app. NOT to break things that were not even close to broken, or to change the UI so much that we don't even recognize what used to be a lovely little app. Please bring back the goodness of Skitch! I hate hate hate to leave a 1 star review for an app I have used and loved everyday for years, but there just is no choice.

After the Evernote move, Little Snitch just isn't the same. There's a lot of things that went worse (most of which has already been mentioned). I hope someone takes a lesson out of this: after acquiring an app in this popularity, you should never (re)release the app in a broken state – with missing functionality that were once there. For instance, right now, you're no longer able to remove the hideous outline from text. Why isn't that possible? I also don't like being nagged about joining Evernote all the time I launch this app. I may be willing to rate this up once again, but then the mischievous Evernote ads need to go and the app needs to be restored back to previous functionality to begin with.

Unbelievable leap backwards from previous feature set and functionality. I've downgraded to the last available previous version (with thanks to the kind folks who posted the link!). Now, I'll grant that the app is still free and it still has some good features, but it has lost almost everything that made Skitch stand out in the crowd. Please bring back all the old features and functionality. Seriously -- what were they thinking??

Version: 2.0.1
I've used Skitch almost every day since the 1.0 beta testing period in 2008. When I upgraded to Mountain Lion (10.8.2), I thought it would be a good idea to also upgrade to the latest Skitch. What a mistake! I should have taken a moment to read the reviews. When I added an arrow to my first screenshot, the default line width was way too fat. I deleted that arrow so I could change the line width. But Skitch 2.0.1 has no line width tool! What was Evernote thinking when they "improved" the Skitch interface??? I can't comment on any other aspect of Skitch 2.0.1 because I immediately reverted to Skitch 1.0.12, which fortunately still seems to working on 10.8.2. There's a download link for 1.0.12 on this MacUpdate page on Evernote's Skitch page. Be sure to grab it now because it may disappear.

I've removed Skitch from my Mac and from my iOS devices, pulled all of my photos (that was a royal pain) and removed Evernote. I'll find an alternative to Skitch. Why Evernote felt the need to play games with Skitch after "saving it" is beyond me. Skitch really did have a lot going for it, but I wont' support it by using it anymore.

Wow. That's the only thing that summarizes Skitch 2.0. They took what was easily one of the absolute best image annotation programs on the Macintosh and completely, utterly gutted it. Significantly fewer options (can't even chose a line width!?), no ability to select what font text uses, and all wrapped in a clunky, ugly interface. All for what? Evernote integration? I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that they ruined Skitch with this update. Whatever you do, don't update. If you've used Skitch for any period of time, you'll be saddened by the shell of a great program that's on offer now.

Oh my… it took Skitch years to get out of beta and become a truly functional and amazing app. It took the developers only a couple of months after being bought out by Evernote to kill their much beloved baby. This version 2 of Skitch feels like version 0.1 beta of some first steps into programming and GUI design. What were they thinking? Are people at Evernote really THAT stupid to believe they've improved on Skitch??? Please, can somebody provide a link to the last version 1?

Been using this since the beta, its been unique and amazingly functional and fun to use, which is exactly why Evernote bought them probably. But shame on them for ruining it. I have no idea why they redesigned it but its so much worse and does so much less. Clunky POS. You took everything that made it unique and fun and swapped it out for something that looks like a student project. Desperately trying to download and use old version as long as possible. I'm sure the old skitch team can only look on in regret at what evernote did.

This upgrade is the WORST. It tries to steal all the pictures from your Aperture or iPhoto libraries and upload them to the Evernote servers. It saves all your Skitch activity as well, and in my case, it would fail every few minutes, triggering alerts. If you've made the mistake of installing Skitch 2.0 from an earlier version, all is not lost. You can use Time Machine to restore the older version in your Applications folder.

Awful release. Menu item is gone. Evernote is pushed EVERYWHERE, the UI changed for worse. Back to 1.0. BEWARE! I somehow knew that would happen after the Evernote money grabbers bought this out. But I didn't think it things would turn that bad :( Their iOS app in turn, is pretty nice though. But on Mac, I'm back to 1.x for as long as I am able to use it, I'm afraid.

Just to add to the V2.0 notes... The GOOD: - Nice area capture dialog allows you to easily adjust area - Post-snap cropping is easier - Much simpler UI - less clutter The BAD: - No user-definable shortcuts - Only runs as an icon-in-the-dock app, not in the menubar - No history, except via Evernote (i.e. you need to be online) - Much simpler UI - less options! I've just downloaded V1.x to keep using until V2.0 has matured a little.

Terrible release. Going back to 1.x until I can find a replacement. I cannot believe what Evernote has done to the app. • Evernote history is horrible. I've been using Skitch since 2007 and there is no way to import my old history into the system due to a crap quota (that needs to be eliminated for old users). • Color selection no longer exists (no custom colors, only a set of a handful of colors that are NOT helpful). • Tools are not as flexible in nearly all cases. How to add/remove borders, shadows, etc? • No shortcut • Many other UX issues that make it evident that no real UX testing occurred with REAL users who have used and RELIED on Skitch for many years. Terrible release, pull it and rework it guys.

I use Skitch for a variety of purposes, including marking work for the online class that I teach. I can take a screenshot, write comments all over it on a tablet, then export the result as a JPEG that quickly uploads for feedback to the students. Then there are the quick screenshots to show them how to do stuff, or to show them where things are (complete with big red arrows), or ... In short, in my e-learning environment this has proved to be the best of class of this type of software for me – pun intended! The only thing I'm slightly irritated about is that I paid for it. But hey, you have to roll with the punches, right? I reckon it paid for itself!
